Bible Memory:

1 Corinthians 13: 4- 8a

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

  • remember your home reading on your assigned day
  • Rock climbing permission slips went home, please get those signed and returned ASAP – they must be in by Friday

Hot Lunch Oversight …

Hello parents … so I made a mistake and completely missed sending home the Hot Lunch forms (for Love Thailand on Thursday) that were supposed to be handed in today by the end of the day. I am so sorry for this oversight, they just got lost in the shuffle of all my paperwork and it completely slipped my mind. It has been arranged that you will be allowed to submit orders on Monday morning before school, at the office.

The order is from Hofstede’s Deli and the items offered are:

Thai Soup/Bun $6.00                                                                                                                                                           Mulligatawny Curry

Thai Salad $6.00

Juice Box $1.00

Thanks for your understanding, if you have any questions, please let me know. I apologize for missing this!

Have a great weekend!

We have had a great week in Grade 2. Started the week off with a Lockdown drill. The students moved quickly and quietly to where they were supposed to. It is quite a bit of time to sit quietly and without moving, but they took the drill seriously and did a wonderful job, I was proud of them. We have also had some fun thinking and writing about what it would be like to live in a snow globe. Most of them decided it wouldn’t be any fun unless they had family with them. Our spelling list this week was especially tricky, but everyone did their best, and that was great! Report cards went home today also, so check backpacks for them. Have a great weekend!

Busy week as we wrap up a term and have been doing some assessments and finishing up things for the term. We had an earthquake drill and the students did an excellent job following instructions and walking through the drill. We also had crazy hair day.
